I'm sure you'd enjoy either just as much. Just be careful specifying the larger wheels

Re: New 500 0 - 62 mph time?

I second that - wish you plenty of fun with your new car!

As for the comparison, its true, they both have the same engine, same transmission and even same brakes. I did however once read about the 500s compression ratio being slightly lower than the Pandas - could that be? Personaly, I think the info isnt correct - both cars achieve same power, same torque, with same rpm. - could someone confirm?

However, the 500 is a bit more economical (check the fuel consumption) which could be due to its shape. The thing I find the most surprising, is Pandas top speed. I would bet my right arm that the 500 is at least 5 km/h faster if I didnt know. Luckily, I didnt

Good luck with your car!
